a/aaa_elflibs-15.0-x86_64-30.txz: Removed. Renamed to aaa_libraries. a/aaa_glibc-solibs-2.32-x86_64-2.txz: Added. This package has been renamed from glibc-solibs, which helps avoid trouble if someone upgrades using "upgradepkg --install-new */*.txz" by upgrading this package before aaa_libraries. Otherwise, if aaa_libraries is upgraded first any libraries in it that are linked against a newer version of glibc than the one installed on the system would refuse to load. a/aaa_libraries-15.0-x86_64-1.txz: Added. This package has been renamed from aaa_elflibs to insure that it will come after aaa_glibc-solibs when upgraded in alphabetical order. Upgraded:,,,,, Added: a/btrfs-progs-5.10.1-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded. a/glibc-solibs-2.32-x86_64-1.txz: Removed. Renamed to aaa_glibc-solibs. a/kernel-generic-5.10.14-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded. a/kernel-huge-5.10.14-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded. a/kernel-modules-5.10.14-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded. ap/slackpkg-15.0-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded. These are some of the important changes (see the ChangeLog for more): Note that this slackpkg release contains a backwards-incompatible change to the blacklisting syntax (e.g. glibc ---> glibc-*). This changes the prior behavior of the blacklist function; previously, adding "glibc" to the blacklist would cause glibc, glibc-profile, glibc-zoneinfo, et al to be ignored by slackpkg. The new behavior is that *only* the glibc package is ignored. If you want to blacklist all packages whose names begin with glibc, you would need to add "glibc.*" to the blacklist now. Also note that any special characters, e.g. "+", will need to be escaped in the blacklist file. To blacklist entire package sets, a trailing slash is now required: e.g. kde/ Another backwards-incompatibility warning: check-updates will now return 1 if there are updates available - this will make it easier to use this feature with cron (thanks to Peter Hyman). Added support for Slackware-AArch64 (thanks to Stuart Winter). Added aaa_glibc-solibs and aaa_libraries to the "do these first" routine. Thanks to Robby Workman for the new slackpkg release! ap/soma-3.3.7-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.
